"As a pioneer in using gamification in media and publishing, Digital Journal is happy to see such a positive reaction to an initiative designed to highlight and reward people for their work," said Digital Journal CEO, Chris Hogg. "Learning how contributors interact with our digital news network offers us unprecedented insight to activities we can use to strengthen our /newsrooms division."
Digital Journal publishes a Top 20 list to highlight the company's top performers across the Digital Journal network. Recording actions such as quantity of articles published, frequency of visit and how engaged members are, Digital Journal awards points and badges to individual contributors based on the amount of their activity. The members who stay the most active in the month are then rewarded with a "Power Users" badge.
